Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
How much does Bentley weigh and how long ago was this eaten?
At this dose, he's consumed enough to cause problems. I would recommend taking him directly to your vet's clinic to induce vomiting. They will likely want to get baseline bloodwork and may also with to provide oral medication to keep him from absorbing additional vitamin D that may have made its way out of the capsule and into his GI tract. Future blood work will also likely be indicated.Failing this, you'll need to induce vomiting at home using these directions and a FRESH bottle of hydrogen peroxide. http://www.sunrisepetclinicaz.com/vomiting.html

Can you explain why vitamin D is toxic to dogs? What will happen
Too much vitamin D in the body will cause the calcium and phosphorus levels to rise in the body and cause kidney damage and failure. It is rapidly absorbed upon ingestion, which means acting quickly is in your pet's best interest.
